Stantec and Graham Design Builders LP have been awarded the design build contract for the Cariboo Memorial Hospital redevelopment project in British Columbia. The expansion will include inpatient and emergency care, providing the communities of Williams Lake and Cariboo-Chilcotin with access to critical healthcare services. The CAN$366 million project at the Cariboo Memorial Hospital will be delivered via a progressive design-build model. 

Adding over 100,000 square feet and three stories to the existing hospital, the project will include a new emergency department, a 36-bed medical and surgical inpatient unit, a 6-bed maternity services unit, a mental health and substance-use inpatient unit with 8 single-occupancy rooms, and a new pharmacy. 

Engineering solutions deployed on the project include the adoption of technology to improve patient experience, extensive amounts of heat recovery and high efficiency, low carbon mechanical and electrical energy systems resulting in a 72.4 percent reduction in GHG emissions. The project is pursuing Gold certification under LEED Canada BD+C V4. 

Construction will happen in two phases. Phase 1, which includes the addition, will begin in spring 2023 and is expected to finish in fall 2026. Phase 2, which includes renovations to the existing hospital, will begin in fall 2026 and is scheduled to be complete in early 2029.
